Well, my son knows Klingon is a real language because he's observed me
speaking to others. Just this Saturday I spoke with {DeSDu'} (Jack Bradley)
over Discord while he was in the room with me, and he even tried to sing
{Qoy qeylIS puqloD} for him. (He knows only the first, third, and last
line, so a bit of lossy compression going on there.) And Sunday I took him
to meet André Müller (whom he knows) and Christian Bayerlein (who was
visiting) and we spoke Klingon together.

I don't know to what degree he'll actually pick up the language, though.
I'm not actively trying to teach him.
